The society, which is in its fourth year, holds the event annually in Nairobi but they plan to expand into other regions.” We have members from all the country and even Kenyans living abroad,” she said. “We want to expand the organization into a higher level of influence for our members and tackle some of the issues that multiples and parents of multiples face such as financial, which is the biggest challenge that most have.
“On the day, for example, we will have members from the insurance industry give a talk on the best covers for multiples, kindergartens will also familiarize the members with the packages they have for parents of multiples and also toy suppliers. We also want to reach out to parents who have lost their child (ren) during birth or are born with development issues and offer them counseling.”
Other than that, there will also be fun activities for kids and talks on different topics such as car safety, first aid, nutrition, breast feeding, infant supplements, schools, on whether it is best to raise multiple children independently or together, breastfeeding and child safety among others. The talks will be led by experts in their respective fields and also parents with experience in raising multiples.
